Thanks so much. I have to fly out to Vancouver at the end of the month.

:(

Ah cheer up, it was fine. It probably even made the plane go faster, or something equally beneficial.

Maybe when lightning strikes your plane you'll get superpowers.

That's not nice.

As this video shows, when lightning strikes this man's plane -- as it surely will -- there's at least a tiny chance that the electricity will not ignite the fuel in the tanks and cause a catastrophic explosion hundreds of feet in the air.

Desi: Look on the bright side, at least your flying *OUT* of Vancouver.

/trolling Vancouver for no reason.

Cleaner82
Out *to* Vancouver. There is no upside to this tragedy in the making.

What is wrong with Vancouver? It's one of my favorite cities.

Do you want to know the worst part?

Your in-flight movie is going to be "Never Too Young to Die", starring John Stamos and Gene Simmons.

Everyone on that plane just found themselves on a hidden tropical island, 30 years into the past. In order to survive, they will have to integrate themselves into a group of researchers who have colonized the place despite tensions with another group of even more mysterious natives. They will face grandfather paradoxes.

This is what you have to look forward to, Desidiosus

Comeuppance
This is the part where I ask:
"Why the hell were they taping this?"
Banal Intercourse
Because the plane was about to be struck by motherfucking lightning!

Rafiki
I was in a plane that was struck by lightning! It was pretty rad, although I didn't get any superpowers. Not even obviously made-up ones, like a 20" penis or becoming irresistably attractive to the opposite sex. All that happens is that it gets super bright outside and the lights in the plane go dark for a few seconds.

Planes are designed to take lightning strikes, they just discharge it through the fins or something. Except the plane that Desidiosus is taking. It would just stall, and then take an unmercifully long time to glide down and slam into the earth's surface, exploding on impact.

Exploding on impact? Nah, it'll just crush all of the passengers into a large mass of flesh and broken bones. It's the smoke from the burning jet fuel that'll kill them. Eventually.

I don't worry about plane crashes because I always presume that Nicholas Cage will be there to help me.

I heard that when the lights go out you can hear God's ambivalence to human suffering. Then sometimes the wings fall off.

zatojones
planes aren't "designed" that way. they just are that way by virtue of their structure and materials. both an airplane's aluminum fuselage and a car's steel frame act as a Faraday cage when struck by lightening.

Umaro
Actually, yes, they are designed that way. The ability to discharge built up static electricity AND take a lightning strike are major things taken into aircraft design. I'd know, I work on aircraft :)

Although, when an aircraft is struck by lightning it is grounded, declared unserviceable and almost everything on it is examined.

...finally, a video I can comment on that I actually have some knowledge in!

It's like The Langoliers. Except instead of everyone who is awake disappearing they just shit their fucking pants.

I've found that nearly any fear or paranoia can be conquered with a small amount of willpower, 5-6 clonazapam and as much in-flight liquor you can handle before you get a rational assessment of your situation.
Rafiki
Ripper is a gangster!

Keefu
It's ok, there was actually just a Pikachu under that plane.
